While celebrating the coming of winter, the kids at My Little Preschool were concerned about where the birds might go to get out of the cold weather? WELL, while most fly south, others stay and make warm burrows or nests to stay in through the cold days.
We discussed what birds make their houses out of, not only in the spring but also in the winter. They find sticks, grasses, weeds and even some human items like string and ribbon. We decided to make some nests ourselves. Here's what we came up with...looks nice and cozy doesn't it?
|Miss A thought her birds needed a walkway to the front door of their nest...so she created one ;]|
|Mr. H made sure his nest would be strong so he glued on some sticks for extra strength!|
|Mr. J carefully places the berries on his bird feeder :]|
|Miss M feels like the more "stuff" on the bagel, the better!|
|a finished product...ready for the tree!|
